Question: I asked about my nerve damage before. I think it was of XXXX?
Is there any medication I can take to calm the tingling in my fingers caused by nerve compression/damage following a car accident two years ago?

I have had a laminectomy followed by a feraminotomy (June, 2014). Finger and arm persist. Can I take some nerve calming meds??

Brief Answer:
Can be taken

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your message.
I think I can help you.
The medicines that are usually prescribed in neuropathy are methylcobalamin, pregabalin and gabapentine.
I think it would be good to see a neurologist for the prescription for one of the above medicine.
However, the response may be limited in view of the age of the condition.
But it is worth a try.
Best of luck.
Dr Mittal.

I had my 1st ankle surgery in 2009 in which the superfisicial peroneal nerve eas but & buried into my bne. The second surgery in 2010was a rght lateral ligament repair, right peroneal tendon tenolysis repair,brevis.The third was in June 2112 in which tenolysis of the pernolysis brevis with transfer of the peroneus brevis to the longus resulting peroneus brevis intact but very tendinotic , therefore completely cut out,and the tendon sheath repaired. The last surgery November 2112, I had to have the sural nerve and a branch of the superficial peroneal nerve cut & tucked into muscle. My surgeon(& I agree) tells me that s it, he cannot do any more. But the thing is, I am still having severe pain and swelling He did tell me that there would always be pain due to the lose of the tendon but I had expected better then where I am at. Granted, I am only in my second week of therapy but I am really worried about where I am goign to be in the long run. I like & trust my doctor very much but would like some input from another source. Thank you. Janet Treash
